Of all of the holidays, Thanksgiving is the one that has changed the least for me as I grew up. Christmas, Easter, and Independence Day all seem very different when I was young compared to what they are for me now. But Thanksgiving is as it always was; an opportunity to enjoy food, beer, football with my family. I spent the whole day inside with Mom, Doug, and my grandmother (and some canine companions) shooting photos, making food, drinking wine, and enjoying the freedom from the cubicle. Here are some photos from the day:
I met some new friends at Siemens that are from Germany, and they invited me to go down to the Pittsburgh Light Up Night with them. I’ve been doing my best to show them some cool places in Pittsburgh. I’m sure that when I get the chance to go to Germany, they’ll do the same for me. Despite the heavy traffic in Station Square, the Light Up Night festivities are a lot of fun and the whole city seems to jump on the band wagon. Here are some photos and a video I took.
